1. Play more than one round a month. 2. Get a proper fitting for my whole bag. 3. Single digit handicap. 4. Stop bothering my wife with swing theory. I listed them in order by difficulty. I'd honestl

What course is that? I saw the one pic of the par 5 you posted and I want to see more! PS ... I can't keep up with you on the links yet, but I'm pretty sure I could hang with you on the alley! ;). (

Just broke 90 for the first time today! If this becomes a regular thing, I'll have to update my #2 goal to 85.

Right now I'm a 12.8, so I'd like to take at least 3 strokes off of that and be a single digit. I managed to break 85 a handful of times this last year and broke 80 once, so I'd like to see my scores get down into the low 80s range consistently and see a few more scores in the 70s.

The biggest thing for me is going to be learning how to be more consistent off of the tee... My iron play has become more and more consistent and I pretty happy with that and the short game/putting seems to be coming around but the driver seems to be either be on or completely off... If I can figure that out the above shouldn't be too hard.

Oh, and one last thing... track EVERY round in Scorecard... I did a great job at the beginning of this year doing it and then about half way through I got lazy... I'd like to have an entire year of stats this time next year.

My goal for 2012 was to shoot my age(70) but the closest I came was a 74.. In 2011 I came close needing a birdie on 18 to shoot 69 but fell short. In 2013 my goal is to go out and enjoy the game, don't mad when I play below my expectations and accept how I played

that day.

Improve my all around game to a single digit handicap. Really need to focus on GIR and putts.

2012 Stats:

Driving Accuracy - 54% (27% miss left, 19% miss right)

GIR - 25% (Yes that's terrible)

Putts per round - 33 (Also terrible considering I don't hit many greens!)

My goals are as follows:

1. continue physical therapy so my shoulder dysplasia is no longer a problem (should be accomplished by mid January :fingerscrossed:)

2. Take 3-5 private lessons (waiting to do it once my shoulder feels better)

3. get my swing in a good enough place (hopefully thanks to lessons) that I can start focusing more on my short game and putting to lower my scores

4. The big one and if I accomplish the goals above I think this one will take care of itself: CONSISTENCY

5. Maintain a handicap at 7 or below (currently hopping back from 10-12). Again if I accomplish 1-4 this one will take care of itself

My goal for 2013 is to not let my HC rise by more than 2 strokes.........

I'm joining a new course in 2013 and this course really kicks my butt.  there is trouble everywhere...and when you do finally reach the green....they are very slopy and difficult to 2 putt unless you hit it close.   I hope by playing it regularly, I can figure it out.  Only time will tell...LOL

I am still accumulating score cards and haven't yet established a handicap, but as most of those are (sadly) mid nineties it will come out in the 20's. So far pretty much all of my game is quite erratic, but I'm getting some lessons and putting in a good bit of time on the range and putting green. So... - Gain decent consistency in both distance and direction in my long game and develop some confidence in fairway wood play. - Develop better consistency in my short game and finally learn to chip (a skill that has eluded me in all of my previous attempts at golf.). Better putting too, of course, but I suspect that will remain a lifelong quest. - Progress on the above general goals may be judged by my handicap; I don't think it is too aggressive to aim at 15 this time next year I do hope I'll be back next June to update this after realizing I was way too conservative in this goal... :-P Jim

At my home course, where i have been playing 20-30 rounds each year for ten years:

1. Birdie #12 and #17, neither of which I have ever birdied.

2. Keep my handicap index under 10 for the whole year.

3. Play nine holes in even par.

4. Hit my irons more consistently, taking a few lessons if necessary.

I'll play 2 sets of tees at my new home course..........73.2cr 141slope...forward tees.....and 75.2cr 144slope..(summer tees)

I look forward to the new challenge.......this course is brutal.  If you don't like golf, we can talk bowling, because I do that too.

I'm a much better at golf though..(scratch)....but I can roll the rock...just a bit.  278 is my high game.

1. Develop more accuracy on approach shots.  (need a few more GIR to boost my scores)

2. Break 80 more often.

3. Keep the ball in better position off the tee(cut down on the wild lefts or rights)

4. ENJOY!

    • Got our shots tonight. Moderna vaccine and already scheduled for the follow up shot. Man, but they had things dialed in. Very slick operation and all went well. Many thanks to the folks around the country working these clinics! Except... major side effect! When I went in I had a full head of dark brown hair and when I got home and looked in the mirror imagine my surprise when I saw that what was left of my hair was grey!  Ha! Seriously, no side effects from this shot for me - not even a sore arm!
    • The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo (2011) A strange movie. Kind of hard to follow along too. Overall, a good dark thriller. I give it a tap in par. 
    • This is what I do as well. When I focus just on the ball, or a dimple on the ball, or a blade of grass, my takeaway gets funky, or more so than usual, and my swing gets all out of sync. 
    • I rarely ever play an extra ball.  if I am on top of the group in front of me and it is open behind me I may go back and replay the hole but that is rare. My preference is to get a true score. The course is to play, the range is for practice.
    • Very possible. I usually play well when I "feel" like I rotate everything towards the target at the same time.
  • Today's Birthdays
